Ref:[1]: Magento 1.7 Import: "Invalid image file type."

I am also having the same issue invalid image file type. I am trying to import product images from external url.. while importing the csv file, blank files created inside the media/import folder. And shows error a87ff679a2f3e71d9181a67b7542122c. [extension] => [filename] => a87ff679a2f3e71d9181a67b7542122c ){"savedRows":0,"errors":["Invalid image file type."]}. Please help me to solve the issue

Is it only happening with some of the images or all of them ? If only to a part of them, change them from JPG to PNG, should do the trick. PNG is much lighter and more friendly to Magento.

  • no.. its happening with all of the images
